Deer Park Alimony Attorney
Alimony/Spousal Support Information
During divorce negotiations, measures will be taken to ensure that both
parties can survive financially, now that they will be on their own, and
not sharing the cost of household expenses. If there is a large disparity
between the incomes of the two spouses, the spouse who makes more money
may be expected to pay alimony, or spousal support. Spousal support, like
child support, is a set amount of money that one spouse is expected to pay to the other
to help them out with the necessities of life, such as groceries, clothing,
bills, and rent or mortgage payments. When negotiating the terms of spousal
support it is helpful to retain the services of a Deer Park divorce attorney,
who can help you fight for your spousal support needs.
Alimony is usually a temporary circumstance, set in motion until a time
when the person receiving support can reasonably be expected to make ends
meet without support. In some cases, the support may become a permanent
necessity, if, for example, one spouse becomes permanently disabled and
cannot work. How long your marriage lasted, the ability of each party
to pay support, how much money both parties make, and whether or not someone
is disabled all factor in to determining a fair amount of spousal support.
However, if, over time, needs have changed, you may need to consider a
modification of spousal support, where the court will go over the newest information and determine if
the set amount is fair, too high, too low, or altogether unnecessary.
In all of these instances, you will want to have an experienced attorney
by your side that is committed to fighting for your best interest s, and
is aggressively pursuing a resolution that reflects your goals and objectives.
